Cardinals draft OT Nate Potter from Boise State at 221
The 6'6" 303-pounder started all four years at Boise State. He has good athletic ability but needs to add weight to his frame. He has the potential to be a solid pass protection blocker if he adds to his body mass but he'll need to get stronger if he wants to become a starting offensive tackle.
Potter has proven to be a consistent force on the field at Boise State, having started every game the past two years for the Broncos.
He possesses quickness, good range and is a solid technical blocker. He has the skills to earn a starting job but will likely need a few years of seasoning before he is ready to tackle such a role. Potter has big hands and could be assigned to block against speedy edge rushers.
The Cardinals made Potter their final selection in the 2012 NFL draft. They opted to choose three linemen in this year's draft who all have high level potential and could develop nicely under their coaching staff.
Potter will likely be listed behind Levi Brown and D.J. Young at left tackle.
